Exploring and learning about the marine environment in Sabah has been an incredibly valuable experience for our 43-strong group of international school students who spent a night camping at our Gaya Island beach house too!
A dedicated PADI Instructor from our full-time team will present the AWARE Coral Reef Conservation course to discuss the benefits of protecting our marine environment. This is followed by an organized beach clean-up to collect marine debris from the islands’ beaches and experience actively participating in a conservation project!
Marine debris is the biggest hazard to the environmental health of our local area, and integrating active volunteering opportunities for the students to participate offers a unique learning perspective.
The adventurers’ walk along tended jungle trails in the rainforests of Gaya Island to explore the terrestrial life that can be found, such as macaques and hornbills.
For the second day of their program, our popular snorkel safari program is conducted for the students to then explore the marine environment and the colourful shallow reefs of Tunku Abdul Rahman marine park. Each session, the group will be visiting a different snorkel site for a varied day, and their PADI professional guides will encourage them to collect any marine debris they may find whilst snorkelling too.
